David Buursma : Senior

Here is a talented young man, who we were blessed with the opportunity to photograph. David is an amazing Tennis player, and awesome singer! You may have seen him previously in our post for the Living Hope Showcase 2009. Well, we were lucky to move his photo session up an hour to avoid typical unpredictable Michigan weather, and we ended our session on the HC tennis courts with sprinkling rain just starting. David loosened up on the courts where he showed us a few of his super powerful, and accurate serves.... (Thank you David, for not allowing us to use your racket to show our lack of talent on the court... There would have been many damages had one of us tried a serve) :) Thanks again David!

Rich & Amie : Wedding

A huge Congratulations goes out to Rich and Amie! They were married June 26, 2009 in Rockford Michigan, in Amie's small hometown church. They chose not to see each other before the ceremony, but we were still able to catch some great shots even as it got dusk to dark. It was a very emotional day for the two of them and they both held strong right into each other's arms til the end. May God bless your relationship with each other from now until forever! :) Here are a few of our favorites to share with you while you wait for the rest. Enjoy.

Heidi Brookens : Senior

Our wonderful Rep, Kristin Baron sent us this fun beautiful blonde from Holland Christian High School. Heidi is into acting, and is a GREAT singer! She will be joining Holland Christian's Living Hope singers for 2010!!!! An amazing accomplishment if you know the talent expected out of these young students! Congratulations Heidi! We had some fun downtown in the 93 degrees, HUMID Holland weather. Heidi let us drag her around 3 blocks in the heat to get her senior photos done. What a trooper :) Here are some teasers for all your hard work and sufferings through that warm shoot.

Justin & Christin : Wedding

Now here is a bride and groom that could through out surprizes! Christin ended up being an excellent dancer, and Justin ended up being the man of ANY girl's dreams! The couple was perfect for each other, and had a very fun and fancy free attitude to life and their wedding day. Thanks to all Christin's hard planning and major organization skills, the day went so smoothly, it was a photographer's dream! Thanks guys! Sorry for the delay in posting your big day.... we are working on the rest of the photos, and they will be online sometime next week. Thanks for waiting. Flowers were done by Floral Elegance out of Molene, MI. Christin's home church, Faith CRC, hosted her ceremony where Mr. Brandson, Shane Brandson & Jenna Brandson displayed their musical talents, and Mrs. Bird played the organ. The Yacht Basin on Lake Macatawa was quick to help with a reception hall cancellation, and Branns Steakhouse catered in excellent food!

Flash Flood!

I thought I'd blog to let you know there may be a small wait on any photo shoot's photos... sorry. The storm Friday night affected many in Holland, MI, but here's what it did to us. David and I were fortunate... no water damage... my parents on the other hand.... not so lucky. God kept them all safe, but their basement took on about 5 feet of muddy water. Electric went out during the storm and their sump pump stopped working. This first photo is of 32nd St. downtown, looking out our porch window. A car was trying to forge the 'river' and didn't make it. Our neighers all had water in their basements.....

Yes, that is a garage door...

My sisters and others are moving the basement items out through a basement window to dry on the yard.
Kelly, Elyse, Bob, and my dad pushing things out the windows

Those couches are sitting on a full sized pool table.... and that fire place is submerged. We stood on the steps, where the water came up about 7 of 13 stairs.

Christopher & Abby : Wedding

Abby and Chris were married Friday June 12th in Zeeland, Michigan. Their wedding day was a beautiful day, and our photography was super easy with such a beautiful Bride and handsome groom! We LOVED the colors for their wedding! The bright flowers were my favorite detail, and the bridesmaids were all lively, and full of character. Most of my favorite photos are with the bride, so I apologize to Chris, but must say, he has an absolutely gorgeous wife! Check on the website in a week or so for the rest of their photos!

Sunnybrook Golf and Country Club did a GREAT job catering and hosting their reception, and the DJ would be our no.1 recommended DJ from here on! Curtis Avison... Check him out!
